Elders hold the wisdom of past generations and are essential to strong, healthy nations. The gathering supports the need for Elders throughout the area to connect socially and with the community that binds them together as a nation. It allows them to intermingle with like-minded, like-aged individuals and their families, and to reveal common grounds that strengthen those links. The Elders gathering is a community event that provides us all with an opportunity to honour all Elders. It allows non-native people a glimpse at the depth and beauty of native cultures while providing a chance to share and embrace the traditions. The gathering is a way for the community to learn from one another in the spirit of love and respect.
To empower people to make informed choices and live independent lives.
